British singing sensation Amy Winehouse has been found dead. The singer renown for her haunting vocals and beehive hair was only 27.
The story of Amy Winehouse is a tragedy of young talent and promising career consumed by the vices of drug addiction. Amy Winehouse’s most popular song, Rehab, was about her addiction to drugs, alcohol and forelorn love to overcome many obstacles in her life.
Through the years we watched Winehouse deteriorate and wondered how much longer could the frail bodied woman continue her drug binges without great harm. Sadly, and before she could be reached for healing, she is now dead.
A London police statement said: “Police were called by London Ambulance Service to an address in Camden Square NW1 shortly before 16.05hrs today, Saturday 23 July, following reports of a woman found deceased.
“On arrival officers found the body of a 27-year-old female who was pronounced dead at the scene.
“Enquiries continue into the circumstances of the death. At this early stage it is being treated as unexplained.”
While foul play or self-harm could be involved, considering the track record of Winehouse and her age, it would not be surprising if drugs are involved in what is really a sad story and tragedy.
Young folks, stay away from the drug scene. It is full of seedy, dangerous characters and a substance that will lead you to do depraved things. I would know. Here is one of Winehouse’s performances of a really good and well performed song. Note that she is singing this live.
